Promoting Baselines


Promote baselines in order to move their item revisions to a higher stage in the Global Stage Lifecycle, and optionally, have the item files deployed to the associated area(s). This method of promotion enables you to group the item revisions that belong to a particular project/stream or design part and promote them in one operation.

Note that refactoring changes will not necessarily be deployed. It is recommended that you deploy refactoring changes using requests.

Promote a baseline to the next stage in the GSL (BASELINE_PROMOTE_NEXTSTAGE).

Promote a baseline to any stage in the GSL (BASELINE_PROMOTE_ANYSTAGE).

To deploy promoted baselines to a non-default area, you need the Deploy a baseline (BASELINE_DEPLOY) privilege for the area to which you want to deploy.

To promote a baseline:

  1. Do one of the following:

  1. On the first page of the Promote Wizard:

  2. Click Next.

  3. Optionally, on the Deploy to Areas page:

  4. Unless you have the necessary privilege, you will not be able to select any areas other than the default area(s) or deselect any default areas.

  5. Click Next.

  6. A Summary page is displayed informing you of the actions to be carried out.

  7. Click Finish.
